Friday Morning Update 

Yesterday turned out to be an extremely active day!  My Maryland Trek Team crossed central Maryland where the high at Baltimore’s BWI was 99ºF (not a record). We outran the storms that dumped 1.22” of rain at the airport and produced local flooding and damage.

Destructive storms led to still over 24,000 people in Maryland without power this morning. 

 

Smith Island Tornado Video

The storms erupted along the Chesapeake Bay with a rare event: This waterspout came onshore as a destructive tornado and it was caught on video as it did that..

Maryland Trek Day 4 Recap

Quick Look At Today’s Weather:

 

Afternoon Temperatures 

It will be humid with storms likely late afternoon and evening.

Storm Simulation

Both the HRRR and NAM Model keep this mostly on the western shore of the Bay. But we need to consider that storms have been arriving 1 to 2 hours earlier and have also been more robust than shown in these simulations.

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:

I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell.  It didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. 

I do miss mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. 

All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky. 

There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. 

I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…

It’s part of my charm.
